  • etymologie

Etymologie

The oreegin o the name "Guatemala" is unclear, but several theories exist. "Guatemala" is derived frae "Goathemala", which means "the laund o the trees" in the Maya-Toltec leid. Anither theory is that it comes frae the Nahuatl expression "Cuauhtitlan", meanin "atween the trees". Cuauhtitlan wis the name the Tlaxcaltecan sodgers who accompaniet Pedro de Alvarado durin the Spaingie Conquest gae tae this territory. Lastly, thare is a theory that it is the Spaingie corruption o a Nahoa wird coactmoct-lan, meanin "laund o the snake eatin bird".
